Harvest Time 2013

Started picking some Empress cherries on Sunday October 20. It has been a hot, dry and windy spring with a few frosts thrown in. Empress cherries are only lightly cropped. Other varieties are moderate to reasonably good. Been a challenging spring to work in feels good to have started.

It is good having our son's John and Mark helping us in the harvest. Doug to come soon.

  Our son John graduating on September 14 with a Bachelor of Contemporary Music and a Bachelor of Secondary Education. A proud moment for us all.

John and his partner Tahlia who is  about to graduate with a Bachelor of Environmental Science with Honours. We are proud of them both. Now they can pick and pack cherries ha ha. 

And In the garden

I will place some more photos of the harvest as it progresses.
Best wishes to all.
